The Office of the Contractor General (OCG)has deepened its probe into the contractor who has implicated the three KSAC Councillors in the fraudulent award of government contracts.



In an OCG release, after conducting a further cross-referencing of the 114 contracts which were awarded to the contractor, the OCG found that the fake contractor was also registered with the National Contracts Commission (NCC) as a goods and services contractor.

According to the OCG, the contractor was awarded contracts not only by the KSAC, but by five other public bodies.



The 114 contracts which were awarded to the contractor, between November 2006 and November 2010, had an aggregated value of more than $98 million and were not all awarded by the KSAC.



Of the 114 contracts, 104 contracts, valuing more than $83 million were awarded to the contractor by the KSAC, whilst the remaining 10 contracts were awarded to the contractor by the other five public bodies.
